Have a look at this wonderful project just waiting for you!!! In its heyday, this sturdy stone cottage was the Coromandel Valley Post Office, General Store and Service Station. From 1976, the owners Ron and Gwen worked the store/petrol station and lived at the premises for nearly 40 years. Ron was a bit of a local icon, affectionately known as Mr Wavey, he waved to motorists as they travelled along Main Rd in Coromandel Valley. Even after the service station closed in the late 90s, he continued his friendly waving while on his daily walks along Main Rd with his dogs.
This property shows a ton of potential and a great location. Situated on the Main Rd next to the historic old Institute (now an art studio), there’s easy access to transport, schools, shops, a great bakery, the Duck Inn and it’s only a short drive to Blackwood. If you want a bit of peace and quiet, the property backs onto the beautiful Sturt River Linear Park offers a tranquil, leisurely walk to anywhere in the Valley.
The floor plan shows that there was not only the shop front built on, but also a rear extension, a swimming pool and a garage/shed. There’s quite a bit of upgrading to do, but the results of your labour have the potential to bring stunning rewards – and wouldn’t that be a wonderful project!
